Give a little time to Guide Dogs

Rach Patterson Volunteer Puppy Walker With PuppyAnd make a big difference to someone's life.

We're nothing without you

Guide Dogs relies on volunteers who give their time for so many things. From the volunteers who spend much of their time caring for dogs, guiding people who are blind or partially sighted, driving or raising funds, to those who come out occasionally to hold a tin or cheer on marathon runners, volunteers are closely involved in almost every area of activity.

And whilst we have many established roles for volunteers to take part in, we're also keen to hear from groups and individuals with skills, experience and expertise to share or if you just want to give an hour or two of your time to doing something good. But don't worry if you haven't volunteered before or you're not too sure what you could do, there really is a role to suit everyone. Just get in touch.

By volunteering for Guide Dogs you'll be helping to make a huge difference to the lives of people who are blind and partially-sighted. But that's not all - you'll be part of a great team, you'll be learning new skills and we promise you'll have a lot of fun!

But if you don't believe us, you can hear it from our volunteers themselves:

There are many ways you can help by volunteering for Guide Dogs. In this video one of our puppy walkers talks about the role. There are screen reader accessible buttons for simple control of the video.
